The Best Answer is


If it is disabled, go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services, and look for the SQL Server Agent. Right-click, and select Properties From the Startup Type dropdown, change from Disabled to Automatic.

Make sure that you run the SQL Server Configuration Manager snap-in as Administrator if UAC is enabled. Then right click the service and then click properties, change the start mode to enabled, then start it.
